Still working on that hot first release.



The talented artist Jay Rockwell insists that he was born with music programmed into his DNA. With his mother listening heavily to Motown legends like M​arvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield and the Temptations​, whilst pregnant with Jay, it’s highly possible.

Jay Rockwells musical gift was evident early on when he used to sing at the local church for his Grandfather, who was a preacher. It wasn’t until school when Jay began working with dance and rap-groups like ‘Well Connected’.

Although finding solace in music, the dangers of living in the ghettos of Chicago were very real. The child of a large single-mother family with four brothers and one sister, Jay was surrounded by the high crime rates, police brutality and gang culture that came with living close to Chicago’s gritty underground. However, after finding his passion and desire to succeed at music, he chose a career in the business of music and began spreading his message through hip hop.

Many years on from his early days, having being mentored by some of hip-hops more experienced recording artists Jay is now a full-fledged recording artist, making his living independently through making, performing, licensing and selling his music. Jay Rockwells music is currently available on all digital platforms.

Jay Rockwell has taken full control of every aspect of his career, and is steadily taking the world by storm.
